    For folks who have a huge Kindle collection, but prefer a fully fleshed out Android device, the Kindle App is very handy. Amazon has taken things a step further with a new update which makes it even handier than before. The new update includes several fixes and enhancements, but the best thing they did was add a cool new feature called "Collections." This new feature allows users to better organize their Kindle book collections. You can can organize your books into groups and even name your Collection. Additionally, you can add any book you want to the Collection and add any book to as many Collections as you desire. This new Collections feature is even synced across all of the devices you login through.

    The update also happens to include a few other handy little features. You can now rate a book after you finish it and there are some accessibility improvements for Talkback and Explore by Touch. If you haven't seen the Kindle App before, here's a description taken from the Google Play Store:

    Yesterday's Update seems to have infuriated a lot of users. Many were taken totally by surprise in the middle of their reading experience last night and not only did they lose their place on the page but also had their entire collection wiped out. In most cases, readers had to uninstall and reinstall the App, followed by registering their account again. But, I'm sure that the sudden stress experienced by so many will prove worthwhile in the end.

    Thanks for the heads up. That's horrible. Amazon must have missed some code that would have kept that from happening.
